PRINCIPAL FOR A DAY

I was recently honored to serve as Principal for a Day at Raul Quintanilla Sr. Middle SchoolPrincipal for a Day is a Dallas Independent School District project that brings community leaders into schools across the district.  It was truly inspirational to witness firsthand, the dedication and professionalism of the faculty and staff.  After morning announcements, I observed a student success team meeting.  All of a student’s teachers team with a counselor to ensure a focused and coordinated team approach to coaching the student through their academic challenges. It is a method that seems sure to lead the way to student success.  In visiting several classrooms, I saw passionate, talented teachers and engaged students.  I may have only been a principal for one day but in that I felt privileged to witness just a small part of the day to day for several teachers and administrators within the Dallas Independent School District.

An early morning start and warm welcome lead to a meeting with the community liaison, PTA and SBDM meeting with the Principal, Assistant Principal and Principal for a Day.

Teachers hard at work planning their team’s daily learning objectives for the next six weeks.
